For the 5th year, apprentice electricians from SUNY Empire State’s Harry Van Arsdale Jr. School of Labor Studies are empowered to share a snapshot of their working lives by creating their own short 5-6 min films. Using only a smartphone, they are taught how to shoot and edit video in order to depict a personal truth that might otherwise be framed incorrectly in the mainstream media, where stories about workers and their unions are often distorted and not truthful. Our goal is to create 100,000 Citizen Journalists from the labor union side to help balance the stories about workers and their unions.

Featuring short films from:

Joanna Kokosis, Nikita Stewart, Tyler Novielli, Adonis George, Fox Williams, Joyce P. Smith, Donna Stewart, Shakeema Scott, Abel Alvarez, Bradley Narain, and Gabrielle Rogano (IAM).
